I used to believe that Paul Simon was my cousin. He isn't.
when I was about 6, my friend had barbie versions of the spice girls (we were both obsessed with them) and a bunch of ken dolls we made into the backstreet boys. we always thought that the backstreet boys dated the spice girls, like sporty spice dated nick and baby spice dated brian. (back then I was living in my little fantasy world)
my friend once (I was about 6)told me that while I was out shopping with my parents, the spice girls came down our street with on a huge float while they were singing, and I actually believed her!(I was an incredibly gulible kid)
I'm pretty positive most kids who were five years of age in 1996 would've probably agreed with me that I thought Hanson was actually a girl band. They sounded like girls, looked like girls, and it was just so...girly. My mom told me they were guys and I refused to believe her. I don't remember when it all changed (maybe when I saw them on TV one time and two of them *Isaac and Taylor* had deep voices) but I still thought Zak was a girl.
That was 5 or 6 years ago when I was 13 or 12, I don't know... but the video clip of the song "Waiting for tonight" by Jennifer Lopez was relatively new and often played on TV.
There were many lighting effects - fast moving brightly-coloured searchlights; Jennifer had brocade on her shiny skin as well, her little dress was glossy and she was looking upwards from time to time, awaiting something special...
... and I claimed to my friend that extraterrestrials were what she expected to meet... in fact... Jennifer was among her party fellows, looking forward to the coming of the New Year.
I hope my friend doesn't remember that - they thought I was weird, anyway...
When I was young (about seven)I thought that I could not be a popstar because I didn't have the ability to sing 2 things at once. Years later, i learned they used a backing track.
I thought Scott Joplin and Janis Joplin were related. Two musicians with the same last name - it made sense!
I used to think that John Mellencamp and P. Diddy (or Puff Daddy or watever) were the same person. I have no clue why.
When I was a kid, I was convinced that Yoko Ono was John Lennon in drag. My dad told me it was his wife and I defended my point saying that she was too ugly to be a real girl.
Not too long ago when I heard the word , prima donna, i thought the were saying, pre-Madonna. I thought they were saying that Madonna was such a bossy brat diva that the named people that act like that.
my sister whos 16,had some of her friends stay overnight,about a month ago,like a sleepover. well she has a friend who is great in school,but lacks common sence (you know the type,im sure)well anyway,it was the morning and they were all talking about or watching somthing on t.v. about michal jackson when my sisters friend says out loud "did you guys know michal jackson used to be black??" (keep in mind shes 16 and this happened about a month ago..)
Does anyone remember the 'Chipmunks' singing group? My mother believed they were real chipmunks who had been taught to sing!
Shortly after David Soul hit the UK charts many years ago, I started hearing about a new type of music called 'Soul' music.
I didn't like his song, but was impressed that he seemed to have fathered an entire genre.
i grew up in the late 80's/early 90's and i used to think that marilyn monroe was still alive and she was the same person as madonna.
When I was younger, I used to think that Michael Jackson and "The Artist Formally Known as Prince" were the same person, and no one bothered to tell me different!
i used to believe that Charles Manson was Marylin Manson's real name. So i used to go around school saying that i was a fan on Charles Manson and i liked him... this was before i was wacked up side the head for saying that to my mom... now i know the difference
My brother and I were utterly fascinated when Micheal Jackson would do the Moonwalk, and we tried for hours to get it down ourselves, but we were never able to, so we were convinced that he was a wizard. When my eldest sister went to a Jackson concert one year, my brother and I pleaded her to not go because "he would put a curse" on her. Now, I'm still scared of him, but for different reasons.
I used to think that one day,yes one day , the BEATLES would have gotten back together again! sniff,sniff
I used to think "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees was actually sung by the same person who did the voice of Skeeter on Nickelodeon's "Doug:
Now I feel really really dumb saying this, but until i read another belief on here, I thought Prima Donna was Pre-Madonna. Ex. Someone who is trying to be as popular as madonna. That made sense to me!
